No chance of me making it across the Pond to see a show in person but I gave a listen to this one that went up on the Archive recently:

It's ok, I guess, but not a keeper as far as I'm concerned. Kimock noodles away to pretty good effect, but I've heard him much better than this. I have to say also that I thought the new songs were pretty weak (even if they are by Hunter) and I just don't get along with Jen Durkin's singing. One man's opinion.

Still, it's good to see some Mickey Hart shows going up.

Couldn't agree more. Jen Durkin was not in the same key as the band on occasion. I would rather see Kimock with Ratdog or the Dead, but who wouldn't? Despite his style of playing, I think he would have benefitted from a little more structure in the music.
Perhaps that is not what he is after..........

I think some of the work Kimock did with Phil and Friends and The Other Ones stands among his finest - Kimock and Hornsby are a dream combination for me. In fact, I reckon the 98 Other Ones with Lesh, Weir, Hart, Kimock, Hornsby, Mark Karan and John Molo is without doubt one of the finest bands you are ever likely to hear.
